Critic Reviews

  1. Reviewed by: John Hartl
    Goes out of its way to suppress most natural dramatic conflict, so it's left to the actors to carry the day.
  2. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh
    All fleeting charm where it could have been one of the most memorable films of the decade.
  3. Those who enjoy the old-fashioned Hollywood pleasure of seeing divergent threads neatly pulled together will be more than satisfied.
  4. Reviewed by: Laura Miller
    Features one of the rare complex portraits of a therapist.

    Mumford is good for a few chuckles and not nearly as egregious or cloying as it might have been.
  6. Miami Herald
    Reviewed by: Sara Wildberger
    A little like a secular, more sophisticated "Touched by an Angel" episode.
  7. I enjoyed this while it lasted, especially for the cast.
  8. 40
    Seems as though its reach is always exceeding its grasp...partly because Kasdan spreads himself a bit thin amongst the nine major characters he's working with.
  9. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    Kasdan's direction here is even less energized than his writing.
  10. Watching this string of sketches about small town wackos is like channel surfing a heavy sitcom zone.
  11. 40
    Comes straight out of the Forrest Gump School of Interpersonal Magic, and that's not necessarily a good thing.
